OBJECTIVES: Transapical valve implantation is traditionally performed through a left antero-lateral mini-thoracotomy. A self-expandable apical closure device has recently been developed for full-percutaneous transapical valve implantation. We performed haemodynamics stress-tests on an animal model to evaluate the sealing properties. METHODS: Under general anaesthesia 5 pigs (mean weight: 67 ± 6 Kg) received full heparinization (100 IU/Kg; activated clotting time >250 s and, through inferior mini-sternotomies, 21-Fr introducer sheaths for transapical aortic valve implantation (outer diameter: 25-Fr) were placed over-the-wire in the apexes...

Firth's logistic regression has become a standard approach for the analysis of binary outcomes with small samples. Whereas it reduces the bias in maximum likelihood estimates of coefficients, bias towards one-half is introduced in the predicted probabilities. The stronger the imbalance of the outcome, the more severe is the bias in the predicted probabilities. We propose two simple modifications of Firth's logistic regression resulting in unbiased predicted probabilities. The first corrects the predicted probabilities by a post hoc adjustment of the intercept...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) remains an important clinical problem with severe complications such as stroke, which especially harms those with risk factors as calculated by the CHADS2 or CHA2DS2-VASc. Until now, no therapy has proven 100% effective against AF. Since the left atrial appendage (LAA) is the most prominent nonvalvular AF-related thromboembolic source and (novel) oral anticoagulant [(N)OAC] carries the hazard of bleeding, LAA occlusion may be an alternative, especially in patients who are ineligible for (N)OAC therapy...

A novel vascular staple (C-staple) was developed that does not enter the vasculature lumen during anastomoses. The objective of this study was to demonstrate C-staple safety when used with a bovine xenograft and compare efficacy of the C-staple procedure with Anastoclip surgical clips or suturing when used with a bovine xenograft. Eight sheep had an acute comparison between suturing and C-staples using both common carotid arteries. Sixteen sheep had xenograft placement in the left carotid artery, eight with C-staples and eight with Anastoclips in a chronic study...

Ibrahim Akin, Christoph A Nienaber
Non-valvular atrial fibrillation is associated with a significantly increased risk of embolic stroke due to blood clot forming predominantly in the left atrial appendage (LAA). Preventive measures to avoid embolic events are permanent administration of anticoagulants or surgical closure of the LAA. Various clinical trials provide evidence about safety, effectiveness and therapeutic success of LAA occlusion using various cardiac occluder devices. The use of such implants for interventional closure of the LAA is likely to become a valuable alternative for stroke prevention, especially in patients with contraindication for oral anticoagulation as safety, clinical benefit and cost-effectiveness of LAA occlusion has recently been demonstrated...

Ischemic stroke is a common complication of atrial fibrillation. Currently, oral anticoagulant drugs are the most commonly used method of stroke prevention. Left atrial appendage occlusion is thought to be the main source of thrombi in patients with AF. Percutaneous left atrial appendage is a valuable therapeutic option for selected high-risk patients with AF and contraindications for oral anticoagulation therapy. While complete closure of the left atrial appendage is the goal of a device implantation the variable nature of the left atrial appendage anatomy makes this goal difficult to achieve...

We report a critically ill premature infant with severe mitral valve regurgitation associated with pulmonary hypertension and a severely dilated left atrium from a large patent ductus arteriosus. The mitral valve regurgitation improved significantly with normalisation of left atrial size 4 weeks after percutaneous closure of the patent ductus arteriosus. This case highlights the potential reversibility of severe mitral valve regurgitation with treatment of an underlying cardiac shunt.
